Does hormonal imbalance cause excessive sweating?

Yes, hope so. I’m daily experiencing sweating. It’s VERY unpleasant, perspiration from the back of my neck down throughout my back simultaneous with a heat always [ with sweat] emanating between my breasts and and upper rib cage. I am truly miserable and thought initially it might be pancreatitis. Is it possible its’s hormonal? I’m post menopausal (radical hysterectomy) due to Ovarian cancer in June, 2000. So?
